1. ENGAGING IN NONSENSICAL CONVERSATIONS
You may want to talk to someone whom you consider to be “toxic”, in order to improve your relationship but you will not get this.
Instead, you are going to have conversations that you barely understand.
Even if you are trying to get into the root of the problem, you will be targeted for all the things that you do not agree with. If you do not know any better, you will suddenly feel like you are the lowest human being on earth just because of believing in the things that you do.
Remember that toxic people will make you feel this way because they believe that you are the problem, if they do not agree with you. You will only become more confused and frustrated. In the end, you may not even remember what you are fighting about.
When you feel down because of the conversation that you have had with a toxic person, remember that it is not you that they are arguing with. They are trying to argue with themselves because in reality, they would love the drama.
Remember that it is not you who is the problem no matter what they say. It is their attitude that should be changed if they would will themselves to do so.
